With the first mid-rise tower nearly complete and the second rising, Fortune 500 company makes a statement about Midtown’s office growth.

Located along Spring Street, south of 8th Street, the new corporate campus of Fortune 500 tech company NCR is dramatically altering what used to be a true urban void.

Construction on the first mid-rise tower, which has been in the works for more than two years, is wrapping up. The second tower, located just south of the first, is now close to topping out.

Along booming Spring Street, the new complex brings a distinctive glass-enclosed atrium, while the angular tower stands out among surrounding new high-rises.

This subsection of Midtown, just north of Tech Square, has been recently transformed. On the surrounding parcels—which until 2014 were empty lots and sprawling parking facilities—Square on 5th, University House, and Modera Midtown have risen.

Designed by HKS, Duda Paine, and Gensler, NCR’s 22-story main tower will feature more than 500,000 square feet of office space. It’s slated to open early next year.

When the second phase is complete, more than 5,300 employees of the Fortune 500 Company—many of whom formerly worked in Duluth—will fill the project.

No word on an expected completion date for phase two.
